Recapping my first semester of university!

I officially started uni in September and these past few months have been completely hectic. If I were to be honest, uni was nothing like what I had imagined.

The first month was kind of laid back in terms of academic. I had assignments and quiz and the usual stuff from high school, only that they are more difficult since you have to balance them with campus activities. Apparently, there were a lot of events that my department’s student association held, most of which only added to my exhaustion instead of my pride of our department to be completely honest. I regret that I hadn’t at least studied the class material before we got even busier.

Then physics practicums came in the second month and BOOM, the majority of my time was spent writing pre-practicum journals and doing lab reports. On top of that, we had training each weekends — yes, I mean Saturday and Sunday, two whole freaking days! — on a variety of topic such as scientific paper writing, entrepreneurship, etc. Suddenly high school seemed so easy. (Take me back please ๐Ÿ™ )

And yeah, remember what I said about wanting to join committee? Well, I signed up for two different event-planning committees and was rejected for both of them. Sucks, right? ๐Ÿ™ I know it’s only my first semester, there are plenty of opportunities next time! But I can’t help but to feel like a pathetic kid, especially since a lot of your friends are accepted intoย those committees… If anybody has tips on how to pass interview sessions, please I’m begging you haha.

So. This recap post sounds like my rambling on the hardship I experience recently. I did have a few positive things to say. I met wonderful people, extremely kind and ones whom I can’t wait to spend the rest of my uni life with. Unlike what I had worried about before, I am not bullied for my ancestry nor my different religion. I got to know some awesome upperclassmen, whom I had fun talking with and could ask advices.

Final exams will be held in two weeks. I’m so freaking nervous! Honestly. I hope I can prepare well for them, especially for the subject I’m weak atย — computer programming. Wish me tons of luck and I will be back with some posts as soon as my break starts.

  1. Hi Kezia, glad to see you back! I’m so happy that you have an easy transition to uni, some people had a hard time ๐Ÿ™‚ And yeah I feel you about the pre-lab journal and reports… they really consume a lot of my time! I’m so sorry about your interviews, better luck next time! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think the most important think in interview is show the interviewer how much you want to be part of the commitee/event/etc. Don’t show you’re nervous, smile and as my mom always says, look the person in the eye during the whole thing. I don’t know why, but I think looking people in the eye gives a certain good vibes? Idk but I always do that ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Hi Tasya! <33 Those lab journals and reports... I'm thankful that I've finished all my topics a few weeks ago so I'm able to sit back and relax a little ๐Ÿ˜€ They are indeed time-consuming... And thanks for the tips! I do realize that maybe I didn't look as much as convincing or committed as my friends. I'm gonna apply for another event next year and hopefully everything will turn out well. Good luck for your finals ^^
